Throughout 2018, we have worked closely with BNI Members and BNI Directors from across the organization to understand how we can best support YOUR success.  And your responses to surveys in SuccessNet have provided valuable insights and ideas – thank you so much for taking the time to answer the CEO Surveys when we have them.  I share them with BNI leaders around the world.  And my thanks to the Members and Directors on BNI’s various advisory groups who are leading the organization forward.  

Together, as one group of passionate business leaders, we’re creating a vision for BNI that is exciting – a vision where BNI has a far larger impact on each Member, each Director, and the world overall than ever before.  To reach that vision, and to accept the exciting challenge you’ve outlined for us, we’ve decided to again grow the Global Support Team.

Starting July 1st, we’ll be adding more teammates to our offices around the world to support you.  These additions will bolster our ability to tell your story – and to tell BNI’s story – at a new level.  These additions will also bolster our ability to recruit, on-board, support and recognize Leadership Teams and Director Consultants worldwide; we’re so thankful for the awesome work they do to help BNI Members in over 70 countries.  Finally, our new additions will add to our operational capacity.  That will enable us to deploy more tools, technology, and programs than ever before – and to do so in a way that’s most helpful to Members and Directors worldwide.   

As Michael Mayer – Co-National Director of Germany & Austria says – we best support BNI by thinking about our work in three distinct areas:  Passion, People, and Process – and in that order of importance.  The Passion, meaning the love of what we do, our deep caring for each other, our belief in Givers Gain®, matters most.  With that, everything is possible.  And so we’ve taken the further step of organizing ourselves into those three important functions.  This provides added clarity and focus to all that we do.

We’ll be recruiting around the world, and we love to hire talented professionals from within BNI.  Explore a few of our initial job postings here. Please let us know if you know of an exceptional professional who wants to change the world.  Stay tuned to future editions of SuccessNet for more postings to come.  

As always, I thank you for your commitment to supporting each other, and to the Core Values that make BNI the incredible organization it is today.  It is an honor to work closely with you to make this world a more open, collaborative, and caring place.
